The Alliance for Global Health and Science (the Alliance) is a partnership between the University of California, Berkeley, and Makerere University. The Alliance seeks to make a tangible, enduring impact by focusing on locally identified health research needs and strengthening collaborations between faculty at UC Berkeley and Makerere University.
The Alliance Summer Institute is an opportunity for Makerere University students to learn cutting-edge, vital skillsets for bioscience researchers from world-class scientists from the University of California system, the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, SciDIP Global, and Makerere University. This year, the Institute will be held completely virtually, keeping in mind the public health crisis of COVID-19.
